Demi Lovato, ‘Drug Rappers Are Pussies’


Demi Lovato to Cosmopolitan on the kind of star she wants to be: ‘When I look at someone who’s out there partying excessively or rappers rapping about doing drugs, who people look up to, and think, Oh that’s a G; that’s a gangster. I think, You’re actually being a giant pussy.

Sorry, but those rockers in the ’80s were the furthest thing from rock stars. They were so insecure and so lonely that they had to do these things to get them through the day. If you’re spending your entire early 20s chasing the next party, what are you running away from? That’s not a badass. What’s a badass is when you can sit through your problems and feel emotions when you don’t want to have them. There have been nights where I’ve had to sit on my hands because,

I want to act out, because I physically can’t sit still in the pain I’m dealing with, from looking back and being bullied or other things that happened. And now, as hard as it may be and I will do that. That’s what makes me a badass. Being a badass is handling your shit.’

On her past struggles with bulimia and cutting: ‘I’m not super religious, but I grew up Christian and I believe in God. When I’m in L.A., I don’t talk about it that much because people are very judgmental, but I just feel like God gave me a voice, not just to sing with. He put me through those things, which seemed horrible at the time, but they were so worth it.

With the obstacles I’ve overcome, I can help people.’ On the lyrics from her song ‘Warrior’ when she sings, ‘There’s a part of me I can’t get back/ A little girl grew up too fast/ All it took was once, I’ll never be the same/ Now I’m taking back my life today': ‘My family knows what it’s about.

When I’m ready to open up that subject with the outside world, then I’ll be free to talk about it. But right now, it’s kind of one of those things where the lyrics speak for me. It’s all in the song.’ On her upcoming 21st birthday: ‘I look at birthdays as celebrating another year of life. You’ve made it another year. An entire year. Some people don’t make it to 21.’

On her first gig at age seven on Barney & Friends and singing the theme song: ‘At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who’s ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child’s heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was seven.

With Barney, I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way.. I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.’ For more of Demi’s exclusive interview with Cosmopolitan pick up the new issue on newsstands July 9.

    Sorry Demi but sit through your problems and feel emotions when you don’t want to have them, it’s not being badass it makes you and emotional person, neither saying confidence is sexy, no way confidence is nice and attractive yeah, but sexy is having a great body and know how to be sensual on the same way.

    Nothing left that you can say

    ‘Cause you were never gonna take the blame anyway (the father wasnt going to take the blame)

    woah there!!!! anyway, just a theory.

    Sorry, but you don’t know shit. She’s not using her fathers death for publicity you fool.. I don’t know if you knew but she’s the type of person that tried her best to find positivity from negative experiences. You should try it! In her fathers honour she has created an organisation where she pays for a scholarship to those who suffer from a metal illness like her father did. She personally focusses on who person at a time to work on recovery. If that’s “using her fathers death for publicity”.. then I actually don’t see anything wrong with that. Educate yourself.

    Since when?????Plus that’s exactly what Miley does . Even if she wasn’t talking about her. When I read that I instantly thought of Miley . But Demi and Miley aren’t close anymore . I doubt she likes her new song. It’s against all Demi stands for.

  • Anonymous

    I completly agree with her, all this rappers and pop star consuming drugs and why for? you need them to have fun? well in that case you’re very stupid I’m 20 years old and I don’t do Drugs and I don’t even drink and I think it’s unnecessary, i go out a lot and I can still have an incredible time without consuming drugs.

  • Anonymous

    Honestly, this chick needs to shut up. I’m so annoyed by her. She has not put out music of any such quality to be criticizing other peoples’ lifestyle choices. She did cocaine and struggled with alcohol and she thinks she’s some saint now? There are reports that she’s still doing it behind closed doors! What an ungracious hypocrite.

    I’m not going to assume she’s talking about Miley or if there’s any reference at all. However, I have more respect for Miley. If any of you aren’t college students, they are all going through what Miley is going through right now, except that it’s not in the public eye. Miley isn’t afraid to fess up or be a bit crazy because of what people thing. Criticize her all you want, but she has this unattainable charisma that will outlast Demi’s little spotlight of rehab drama.

    Demi needs to get over herself as some super heroine for girls out there. I’ve struggled with depression myself and I’ve felt more inspired by Miley NOT Demi to lift myself out of it. I’ve never seen such a conceited person in my life.

    *EpicMajorUltraSuperMad Facepalm*

    this is how a real woman should look like, curves are sexy , not bones

    Basically what you’re saying is ‘If you’re skinny, even if its natural and you can’t control it, either go eat until you’re curvy enough or no one will ever think you’re a woman, you’re a disgrace to females’

    Seriously, just because someone is skinny doesn’t mean they aren’t ‘real women’ just think twice before you post comments – praising ‘curvy’ ladies by making skinny people feel bad isn’t helping, its stupid!

  • ThatCat

    Not everyone can speak english, also she wasn’t ‘speaking’ she was typing -__- don’t criticize

    Not true. I’m a college student and usually people get smarter about partying after their first year. Miley , Demi , and Selena are the same age. All would be about juniors or seniors in college right now. I hate to say it but their are plenty of young adults that are college age and know exactly how to handle their emotions. Demi is right. Why drink or smoke when you can have fun without it. Plenty of people in my dorm go to study group instead of partying on Saturday . I recently started going because most of my friends partying started failing.

    LOL She’s been saying the same thing for more than a year. It’s gettin annoying. And it’s a bit hypocrite to say drugs rappers are pussies when she’s so against bullying.

  • Anonymous

    Not because you’re going trought a bad time it’s ok for you to do drugs actually it’s worst after you feel like you depend on them. you don’t need drugs to deal with problems be an a adult and fucking resolved it. and she’s not saying that she didn’t do it, what seh’s saying it’s probably that there are other ways to deal with hard problems, and not killing yourself.

  • Anonymous

    Haha Demi, putting down others to sort of “higher” yourself, when the truth is that you’re no better, lying to your fans about your “sobriety”. Demi, your tasteless music is about hooking up so what’s your place to criticize other people’s music? Demi gets more stupid by the day I swear.

    I’m sorry but who the fck does she think she is calling 80’s rockstars pussies? And calling others judgemental while judging others? You don’t know their past either Demi, just like u always seek for attention by saying that people don’t know half of what you have been through, well guess what, you are not the fcking only person. It’s their choice to use drugs, like it was urs to cut urself. Take a look at yourself, THINK before you SAY.

    I feel so uncomfortable with seeing her pushing her boobs together with that pose in an effort to look sexy. Guess she’s back in that boob phase. She needs to stop being so judgmental when she contradicts herself every other day. Jesus.

  • jay i think this has to do with demi

  • Anonymouszzzzzzzzzzz

    maybe she is right about being able to have fun without all the drugs/alcohol too, but she shouldn’t be judging people who decide to use these things and then tell people not to judge. Maybe they are going through hard times as well, just like she did herself! and maybe they’re enjoying it? who gives a fck? all i know is that after demi got out of rehad she gained TOO much confidence and thinks she s a freaking saint or something.
